AGE: 7-8 years old
BIO: Hello to my new person or family! My name is Sadie, and I have had a pretty difficult beginning, but CDR is helping me find my furever home where I will share all the love I have! I am a middle-aged Mama dog that looks like I have been bred over and over again with little care or compassion. I came north from Alabama heartworm positive and have done fabulously with the treatment. I am all healed up and ready to find my furever place! When I first arrived, it was pretty apparent that I had never, ever been in a home before. Everything was new and unfamiliar. My wonderful foster family has taught me how to go up and down stairs, the joys of snuggling and sleeping on a couch and a comfy bed and SO MUCH more! I think it could be said that I enjoy the finer things in life! My foster family says I am a truly wonderful dog with many wonderful qualities! I LOVE kids and will always look for a warm patch of sun to stretch out and snooze in. Being outside is an all-time favorite and I am perfectly content to find a patch of grass and enjoy a good nap. I enjoy a leisurely walk in the neighborhood but would NOT be a great power-walking partner. Even though I have loved having a fur foster brother Diesel, CDR thinks that I deserve to be the center of someone’s or some family’s world and just meet up with the neighbors and their dogs for walks. I would be the perfect companion for someone who works from home or is an active senior looking for company or a family with older kids. My absolute favorite thing is to be with people! If you would like to meet me, please fill out a pre-adoption application and a CDR volunteer will get back to you just as quick as they can!
Sweet kisses and awesome cuddles-Sadie

Chicagoland Dog Rescue Dogs
Our trained volunteers will determine which home among all applicants is the best fit for the dog, and the dog will be brought back to complete the adoption paperwork. Our adoption fee is $400-450 for puppies 7 months and up and dogs. The fee covers the cost of all medical care including all legally required inoculations, a fecal test and deworming (if required), spaying or neutering, and a microchip. Lifetime training is also included.
***** All breeds listed are a best guess or based on information from our rescue partners and are not guaranteed*****
All our dogs have all legally required preventative inoculations, are microchipped and are spayed or neutered to control the repetitive birth cycle that produces more unwanted dogs. Most have been rescued from kill shelters in the Midwest, so their exact breed and age is often unknown. All dogs have been medically or emotionally rehabilitated as needed and are temperament tested to assess their fit with other dogs, cats and children.
Chicagoland Dog Rescue reserves the right to restrict adoption of a dog to potential adopters who live within a fifty (50) mile radius of Schaumburg, IL
Weekly socialization and basic obedience training is offered to all adopters FREE OF CHARGE for the lifetime of the dog, something no other group offers! Training is crucial for happy dogs and ensures that our adopted dogs remain in their happy households forever. A minimum of 4 training sessions is required for all adopted dogs.
Details on our training program can be found here.
